Student Activities

Student Activities is charged with encouraging Cypress College students to make the most of their college experience by getting involved on campus as well as supporting their overall well-being. By helping ensure basic student needs are met, we foster an enriching environment that aids students in their academic endeavors. By participating and connecting with like-minded individuals, students can explore their interests, develop skills, create friendships, and thrive both inside and outside the classroom. Student Activities operates out of the Student Activities Center, which also houses a student lounge, game area, computer lab, conference room, Associated Students executive offices, and club project space. Opportunities for involvement are available through Associated Students and the Interclub Council.

Associated Students

Associated Students (A.S.), the student government of Cypress College, provides learning, leadership, and service opportunities outside the classroom. They are supervised and advised by the Director of Student Activities. A.S. is responsible for organizing many events/activities on campus throughout the academic year and representing all Cypress students in the shared governance process on campus by their service on campus committees. The A.S. Council is comprised of nine executive board positions, up to 15 senator positions, and up to 15 Activities Coordinator positions. The A.S. offices are located in the Student Activities Center and business meetings are conducted every Monday during the regular semester in the SAC Conference Room.


Cypress College offers over 36+ clubs for students, ranging from special interest to discipline-based.
